Sew the decoy sides together now, making sure the triangle you've sewn on is on the OUTSIDE. I usually sew them 1/4-1/2" from the edge of the fabric.
My 6th step is to make the rod that supports the decoy on the inside and the opening ring.
This is the other end - is run through the "tube" already sewn in the opening.
Next, turn your decoy right side out, so the seems are on the inside. Thread the rod through the triangle (now on the inside), and thread the ring part through the "tube" in the neck area.
To finish the decoy, hook the end of the round part to the shaft, and crimp closed. Finished product should look like this:
Use the black marker to make whatever design on them you want. I found a permanent marker works better than paint, as it does not soak in, and is dry almost instantly.
